HOUSTON, Sept. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- McDermott International, Inc. (NYSE: MDR) announced today it received full notice to proceed (FNTP) from Entergy Texas, Inc. on the Montgomery County Power Station (MCPS), a 993-megawatt combined-cycle natural gas power plant in Willis, Texas.
The substantial* contract was originally awarded in Q1 2017 for McDermott to perform the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) of a 2x1 Combined Cycle Power Station totaling 993-megawatts. The combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plant will help serve Entergy's more than 455,000 customers in the 27 counties located across Southeast Texas. Full notice to proceed fully authorizes McDermott to begin EPC services for the plant.
"McDermott congratulates Entergy Texas on receiving full notice to proceed and we commend their vision of delivering clean energy solutions to southeast Texas," said Richard Heo, McDermott's Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America. "This combined-cycle project, along with two other power projects we are executing for Entergy in Louisiana, underscores our strong track record and comprehensive capabilities in providing integrated solutions for leading power companies in the U.S."
"We are excited to partner with McDermott as we move forward on MCPS," said Sallie Rainer, president and CEO of Entergy Texas. "The construction of MCPS will provide customers a new source of reliable power that reduces costs and lowers emissions, while also benefitting the southeast Texas economy."
The contract award will be reflected in McDermott's third quarter 2018 backlog.
